One lamb=two turtles=two young pigeons

I’m fascinated by the the blog the Bible project, because really, who wants to read Numbers when you can read a blog that gives you the gist? [1] Leviticus, on the other hand, is clearly the best book in the Bible. The blogger agrees:

Leviticus wanders way off into Weirdistan. As in: What to do when you have an infection in your clothes. These clothing ailments, according to Leviticus, are exactly the same as the skin diseases earlier in Chapter 13. If your shirt suddenly develops “an eruptive affection,” then the priest must be called to examine it, quarantine it, and diagnose it.

1: Disclosure: I spent many years in Catechism where we had to do many dull things like memorize books of the Bible. For years I was petrified that turning around in church meant the devil could get my soul. I’m sure the memorizing is why. Possibly the evil nuns, too.

    What about Lamentations? Or Ecclesiastes?

    I’m not a fan of Lamentations. For me it is down there with the Book of Job as one of my least favorites.

    Ecclesiastes is lovely, but like the Gospels, I always feel really saturated on it. I’d much rather read Zephaniah and the DOOM of the Surrounding Nations.
